Time for a walk in Assiniboine Park.

My work schedule has drastically changed, and I think this would be a great time to go enjoy a walk in Assiniboine Park.

Let's get out and enjoy the autumn days while we can.

The trees are beautiful and a bit of exercise is great for the body & mind.

Come join me for a walk in the park. We will meet in front of the Qualicum Center which is beside the duck pond.

No $2 meet up fee.

      Oh well...might try for King's Head Friday...will let you know soon as I can...is there a limit to the # of us?

      The King's Head meet up started out as a few of us going to check a members son's band out. It grew to about 38 people. Now I didn't make reservations for it, and the place can get busy with a line up to get in, so I advise going a little early. But with this meet up, we will simply all meet up eventually on the second floor where the band is playing on Friday.

    It turned out to be a great day for a walk. Felt really good to be out in the fresh cool air of an autumn day. Great to see everyone.

    Despite the temperature, my car said plus 3, but there was some snow that melted, a great turn out! We walked for 50 minutes, then went for coffee at the Qualicum Center. Everyone seemed to be having a good time chatting the whole time. It was so nice. I really enjoyed myself and meeting a lot of new faces. It will be great to see you all at future meet ups. The Kings Head meet up is the next one and it sounds like quite a few will be coming out to that one. Should be really great. I am looking forward to it. See you then!!!

    hi, im new to the city. im looking forward to meet u guys. i was just wondering where exactly Qualicum Center is in assiniboine park?

    October 19, 2013

    • Stacey

      It is right beside the duck pond area. You say you are new to the city, so the best I can explain is if you enter the park from Portage Avenue, you will go over a foot bridge. When you get across, the duck pond, qualicum center and the English gardens are all to your right side. If that doesn't explain it, ask someone when you get there. They are well known spots in the park.

    I have rsp yes for right now but I there is something else going on that day so it will depend on the time.

    After our walk, we usually go for coffee and some chit chat somewhere, so that could effect the outing. We have had people bring their dogs, and small dogs usually are not a problem but it is true, others think then they can bring larger dogs. The walk is actually for humans to socialize. Some have fears of dogs, some love dogs. So all I can say is it is a public place, and so really you can bring your dog, but the people in the group may not feel the same way regarding dogs, so you may not be walking with them. Keep that in mind. I love all animals. My goal is to get some fresh air and socializing in. I don't own a dog, so there will never be a special day to just bring your dogs and go walking. This is it. You will have to be the judge for yourself

      Though she will be terribly jealous of me walking in the park ..I will leave Maggie at home . She can maybe go another time : )

    While I have no problem with pets and I do enjoy walking with my friend's dog, if we let one person's dog along, others may want the same. If we want a dog walk, there are dog parks in the city more suitable for that type of meetup. Let's do that another time.

    October 7, 2013

  • marian a.

    Can we bring our dog? Mine is quiet , polite and in the pix : )
